I think this school is excellent. My son just completed his 5th grade year here. He maintained honor roll status and joined the band. WHMS has an awesome band/strings! WHMS offers after school activities semesterly for student to participate; he opted for bowling and enjoyed it. Overall (activities & academics), the entire year has been great!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Delaware used the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System (DCAS) to test students in English language arts and math in grades 3 through 10, in social studies in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The DCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Delaware. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

There are not enough high schools in Delaware for GreatSchools to generate fair Ratings for high schools at this time.
